You can do it with boot struts from a starlet. http://z4.invisionfree.com/lexusaltezzaclub/index.php?showtopic=3037

hi lads.
i bought these bonnet struts from proplex 2months ago,the postage was very quick,but there is no instructions with them so be carefull or you could do a lot of damage to a carbon bonnet.
